The New Orleans Pelicans are trading shooting guard JJ Redick to the Dallas Mavericks, The Athletic's Shams Charania reports.
The trade will put the 36-year-old back on a playoff contender as the Pelicans continue to slide in the Western Conference. The Mavericks are also receiving Nicolo Melli in the deal while sending James Johnson, Wes Iwundu and a second-round pick to the Pelicans, per the report.
The Pelicans are also keeping point guard Lonzo Ball, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports. Ball was reportedly a trade candidate ahead of Thursday's NBA trade deadline.
Mavericks add shooter for playoff push
Redick was a part-time starter and key rotation player for New Orleans last season but was averaging less than 20 minutes a game this season while scoring 8.7 points on 40.7% shooting from the field. He's been out since March 3 with a heel injury.
When he returns, he'll provide scoring punch for a Mavericks teams surging in the Western Conference standings and hoping to improve on last year's postseason that saw a first-round exit.
Redick is in the final year of a two-year, $26.5 million contract.
